Item Description...
A comprehensive history of the crusades ranges from the eleventh century to modern times and includes commentary on the art and architecture associated with the crusades and insights into the history of the knightly orders.

Publishers Description
In this collection of essays, the story of the Crusades is told as never before in an engrossing and comprehensive history that ranges from the preaching of the First Crusade in 1095 to the legacy of crusading ideals and imagery that continues today. Here are the ideas of apologists, propagandists, and poets about the Crusades, as well as the perceptions and motives of the crusaders themselves and the means by which they joined the movement.
The book's coverage ranges from the elaborate social and civic systems that arose to support the Crusades to in-depth and vivid descriptions of the battles themselves. The contributors provide keen and insightful commentary on the reactions of the Muslims to a Christian holy war. Also included are studies of crusades outside the eastern Mediterranean region as well as post-medieval crusades.
By describing the combat and homefront conditions, by evaluating the clash (and coalescence) of many cultures, by tracing a legacy that continues in our conflict-ridden present, and by documenting the enduring artistic and social changes that the Crusades wrought, A History of the Crusades offers an unsurpassed panorama of one of the great movements in western history. All students of medieval culture, religion, politics, and/or history will find in these pages a highly useful, thorough, and contemporary account of that movement.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
outstanding  Feb 17, 2009
I found this guide to the Crusades to be very well written. It tends to be somewhat on the dry side - published by Oxford University Press, that shouldn't come as any surprise. While somewhat dry at times, it provides the reader with a wealth of quite invaluable information on the Crusades, how they were financed, who participated, their thoughts, battles ... Over all, this is a superb book. I wish that more information would have been provided about the influence of the Crusades on the Inquisitions and on the experiences of the other guys. It takes two to battle and the perspectives of the Monguls and Islamists and Jews and pagans and everybody else ... well, beyond mentioning of the experiences here and there, there wasn't much discussion. Of course, grammar and style were outstanding. The few photographs really didn't provide much information. It could also have benefited from comprehensive maps. I think that this is an excellent resource for the individual who wishes to better understand the Crusades, whether it be someone from the public or an undergraduate or, perhaps even a graduate student of history or religion. I give this an A-.
